Where's Millie?

Is she watching a spectacular Darwin sunset.....

....over an icy cold beer at her favourite table at the Darwin Sailing Club?

Is she have a slow wander around the Mindil Beachfront Market on Thursday night relishing all the sights, sounds & smells that make the Market so fantastic?

Is she walking around the gorgeous Cullen Bay Marina deciding which fab restaurant to eat in?

Is she enjoying escaping from MOTH's Leaping Lipids No-Fat Diet at the Boardwalk Cafe?

Is she catching a new release at the Deckchair Cinema one night?

Is she running at top speed to her very favourite restaurant Hanuman's to see Jimmy?

Is she ordering a double serve of his famous Chilli Mud Crab?

Is she going very casual down on Stokes Hill Wharf one night for a Thai curry & another speccie Darwin sunset?

Is she actually doing any work this week at these 2 places?

  1. Ah...memories...chilli crab in Darwin...surely one of life's great joys!

  2. You really know how to rub it in Millie! Glad you're having a great time, and don't worry, we won't tell MOTH a thing - he and his leaping lipids diet will be none the wiser! K xx -

  3. This sounds so delicious....
    I love when one knows how to spoil oneself om occasion!
    Does MOTH stands for Millie's Own Terrific Husband? Or so???
    Love that abreviation...

    I enjoyed how you describe Darwin, I would love to see it all one day!
    Australia is so unknown to me...
    But you bring it so much closer!


  4. Enjoy it all Mille, I'm just adding all the above to the list of things I have to see if I get to Australia one day.

  5. Ah yes..I remember cruising around that wharf when it was just a wharf in my older brother's V8 Panel
    Van, going with my friends to the markets and doing some underage drinking at that sailing club! Thanks for the memories Millie, hope you're having fun and hope you can drink, I mean really's not uncommon to drink an entire slab of beer (per person) in one sitting. I didn't do that...Rxx
